Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SLC35B4 Gene
Glycosyltransferases, such as SLC35B4, transport nucleotide sugars from the cytoplasm where they are synthesized, to the Golgi apparatus where they are utilized in the synthesis of glycoproteins, glycolipids, and proteoglycans (Ashikov et al., 2005 [PubMed 15911612]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
